Versatile Sauce Creates Menu Magic

MISSION, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 -- (Family Features) Every cook needs a little menu magic once in a while -- something that turns basic into best. A versatile sauce that complements your family's favorite meals is one way to do it.

Whole Onion & Fresh Tomato Sauce takes only 20 minutes to make. Whatever fresh tomatoes you have on hand -- cherry, heirloom, plum, beefsteak -- will work just fine in this recipe. The chopped tomatoes, along with roasted red bell peppers, garlic, fresh herbs and tender, slightly sweet-tart Holland-style onions from Aunt Nellie's, result in a tasty, chunky sauce that's destined to become your go-to, timesaver recipe. Just quickly saute the garlic, then add the onions and remaining ingredients for a recipe that is practically no cook.

Adaptable to any dish
This flavorful sauce can be used in a number of ways. It's a perfect pasta partner, tossed with angel hair or spaghetti, or spooned over ravioli or tortellini. Finish with shredded Parmesan cheese, if you like. Add an additional layer of flavor and a fresh burst of color by topping plain grilled or sauteed chicken or fish (tilapia, halibut, cod) with the sauce just before serving.

Use these pantry-staple onions to provide a subtle pop of flavor (and extra vegetables) to other favorite dishes including soups, stews and sauces.
